    I worked at Suzy full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The management team, especially the CEO, are as inspiring as they get. Matt has created an incredible work hard /play hard culture and always leads by example. The culture at Suzy is amazing, everyone is looking out for everyone else and you genuinely want to do whatever you can to help each other out. Finally, there are endless opportunities for advancement. The management team fully believes that if you work hard, produce...

    I have been working at Suzy full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    No accountability, so it's an easy way to collect a paycheck. Good pay and benefits.

    Cons

    When I joined Crowdtap 18 months ago, this was my dream job. A lot of smart and creative people who were passionate about making this a dynamic company. The culture was great, people enjoyed coming to work, people enjoyed hanging out outside of work. This was a startup like no other. Fast forward to now and the magic is gone. We've had a mass exodus from the organization...

    I worked at Suzy

    Pros

    Great colleagues. They are the ones who make this company great. The company has pretty good benefits as well. I hope things do turn around! It was great while it lasted.

    Cons

    I worked at Crowdtap for about two years. The company changed drastically as we scaled and culture changed along with it. Influential leaders departed and others (less influential) took their place. It's also hard to understand the product whether you are an employee or a potential client. The value of the product is clear in theory, but the actual product falls short of...

    Advice to Management

    Decision-making should be more transparent. Many choices in the past year made little sense to the wider company and bred low morale as a result.

    Pros

    Collaborative, casual environment, supportive and team oriented. Rotating perks make the day to day fun. Good balance of work hard, play hard. Opportunity for employees at all levels to make real contributions to the business.

    Cons

    Crowdtap is undergoing growing pains. Any transitional period is tough, and while the culture has suffered in minor ways, this should be expected in startup environments.

    Advice to Management

    Talent should focus on building out the product team to ease the backlog of much needed product improvements this year. Great changes are currently under way or roadmapped, but there's still so much more potential and not enough manpower to bring it all to life.

    Pros

    The company's culture and people are its strongest PRO. Never before have I worked at a place where people are passionate and want to build something great. Despite hurdles, setbacks, the team is strong and willing to go the distance to build a great product, provide members and clients with the best possible user experience, and also make it worth clients' while with regards to ROI on the product they are subscribing...

    Cons

    Like most startups this size, Crowdtap also has suffered from a period of very rapid growth without a very solid precise direction. They move in a general direction of success but are yet lacking in focus on the precise nature of the product offering.

    Advice to Management

    Get a CTO.

    Pros

    Crowdtap was founded on the principles that every start-up should be looking to achieve. For the most part, they've been able to hold on to those key attractors that brought some of the best and brightest on board. Management still promotes a work/life balance that may be somewhat uncommon in this stage of a startup. The office is beautiful and dog-friendly. The people you'll be working with will be friends and colleagues...

    Cons

    We only hire, and only train/motivate/incent our managers to hire -- don't optimize efficiency, don't do performance management, don't fire. We poured huge money into glorious new headquarters, signaling to employees "we've made it, we're amazing", then started to hemorrhage clients and personnel. We confuse conference circuit & party scene with actual work. We refuse to take HR seriously. Product leadership is completely...

      Coming to Crowdtap was a breath of fresh air. You're given a lot of room to get your work done and in the way that you feel is the right solution. The perks are amazing, discounts on gym memberships, allowance to put towards your commute, etc. The hidden gem of Crowdtap though is the culture. If you're looking for a place where you can solve tough problems and have fun with your colleagues at the same time, this is...

      Cons

      With the autonomy they give everyone miscommunications can happen. Just have to be on top of letting people know about issues very early on.

      Advice to Management

      Keep up the good work cause we're all super excited to change the marketing game.

      Pros

      The culture is remarkable. I would literally consider every single person on my team a friend, most of them great friends. The 100% trust in all of us to do our jobs makes for a very rewarding environment where you never feel like someone is breathing down your neck and they're always there for you if you need any support. The open door policy to any and every employee from account strategist to CEO also makes Crowdtap...

      Cons? What Cons? I guess because my response requires a 20 word minimum I can say the one area of improvement for Crowdtap is the Green Tea in the kitchen, not my personal favorite, but I think I'll live ;)

      Advice to Management

      Keep being awesome, all the management is great! I'm particularly lucky because the head of my team is a legend in his space, a real king amongst men.

      The screening process for joining Crowdtap is like none I've ever experienced. You spend the day "pairing" with your potential coworkers while being brought up to speed on all internal process. Every time a candidate interviews in our office, it feels like a team building exercise. The team consists of some of the brightest young men and women in the space. The management process is one of a kind, and super collaborative...

      Fast growth means the space is in danger of becoming cramped. Good problems to have!
